Road Closing August 29
Morgan Township

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens reports that rehabilitation of the North Dwyer Road bridge over Dry Fork Creek will begin on August 29. Located in Morgan Township near the Indiana state line, the bridge is a precast concrete slab built in 1982. Plans call for replacement of the existing superstructure with a concrete deck and updated railing.

A construction contract for the project has been awarded to Ford Development Corporation of Cincinnati which submitted a low bid of $289,071. Funding will consist of 100 percent local BCEO funds.

All work is scheduled for completion by mid-October, weather permitting.

Road Closing and Maintenance of Traffic

North Dwyer Road will close 0.1 mile north of Sparks Road at the Indiana state line and 0.5 mile south of Ohio 126 for the bridge rehabilitation beginning August 29, 2016. The road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of October 10, 2016.

During this closure, local access will be maintained for residents, businesses, and emergency vehicles from either side of the bridge, depending upon one's location, but motorists will not be permitted to pass through the construction zone and detours will be posted for all thru traffic.

Detour: Northbound North Dwyer Road traffic will detour west on Sparks Road in Indiana, north on Drewersburg Road, east on Dickson Road, southeast on Indiana 252 into Ohio, continuing southeast on Ohio 126 to North Dwyer. Southbound traffic will reverse this route.

Motorists are encouraged to check the Road Closings page here on the BCEO web site as the best source for possible date and status changes concerning this closure.
